The Francesca sweater is worked top-down. First, the back is worked back and forth, shaping the shoulder slopes using increases. Then, stitches are picked up along the shoulder slopes to work the right and left fronts back and forth. After that, the fronts are joined to work the front back and forth, and stitches are cast on for the neck. Following this, the front and back are joined to work the body in the round. Next, stitches are picked up around the armholes to work the sleeves in the round. Short rows are used to ensure a good fit of the sleeves. The garment is finished with a 1x1 ribbed neckline worked in the round.

Sizes:

XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL
The Francesca Sweater has an oversized fit and is designed to have approx. 30 cm [11¾ in] of positive ease with slightly reduced ease in larger sizes, to ensure a more comfortable fit. This means the garment's measurements will be approx. 30 cm [ 11¾ in] larger than your actual bust circumference.

The sizes XS / S / M / L / XL / 2XL / 3XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 / 85-90 / 90-95 / 95-100 / 100-110 /110-120 / 120-130 cm [31½-33½ / 33½-35½ / 35½-37½ / 37½-39½ / 39½-43¼ / 43¼-47¼ / 47¼-51¼ in].

Before you begin, measure yourself to determine the right size. For example, if your bust circumference is 88 cm [34¾ in], you should knit a size S. If you are between sizes, choose the size based on how loose you prefer the sweater to fit. Using the diagram with the finished garment measurements can be a helpful reference when deciding which size to select.
